- Dear Colleagues,
I trust you'll forgive a TC discussion from the Old Testament.
Recently, on another listserv (either B-Hebrew or ANE), another
individual was requesting input on Isa. 7:11, wherein the great
Isaiah scroll reads m'm or m'b rather than the MT's m<m (from with).
I know of no other manuscript with this reading, and think that
though the Isaiah scroll's reading of from the mother of or from the
father of (YHWH) is far more difficult, the context nowhere in the
passage nor in Scripture refers to a mother or father of YHWH.
